Central heating, double glazing and a wood-burning stove ensure its cosiness all year round, while a separate bathroom, shower room and utility room also make it very practical.
It is south facing and stands on the prominent half acre site of the original farmhouse, quite apart from the steading, bothy and cottage on the former Polmaily Farm. It has spectacular views across the large and secluded garden to the woods and hills of Glenurquhart and Loch Ness beyond. The area is rich in wildlife and the garden is visited by a host of birds, roe deer, badgers, red squirrel and pine martens.
The cottage is half a mile from the nearest road, making it especially attractive for families with children and those with pets. There are also lovely forestry walks which begin at the rear of the garden and lead to panoramic views towards Glen Affric and Loch Ness.
Glenurquhart Cottage has an ideal location in Highland countryside two miles from the village of Drumnadrochit (with shops, Post Office, hotels, restaurants, cafe, Loch Ness Visitor Centre and Urquhart Castle).
Just a half hour drive south-west down the side of the Caledonian Canal (boats for hire) and Loch Ness from the city of Inverness (supermarkets, shops, theatre and sporting facilities).
It is only one hour from the famous west coast resort of Fort William (all facilities) where there is easy access to The Road to the Isles and Mallaig (car ferry to Skye) to Plockton and the bridge to Skye to points further north such as Torridon and to the Moray Coast and the Black Isle.
All make this ideal for car-touring as well as walking, climbing, riding, golf, fishing and skiing in season, being just 50 minutes drive from both Aviemore in the Cairngorms and Aonach Mhor in the Nevis range.
